I posted previously about how to travel on the William Tell Express 2nd class with the Swiss Travel Pass and your assistance was greatly appreciated. However, I am again not sure what to do. It looks like we need to go from Milan to Locarno the morning of August 20. There is a train that gets there around 11:00 a.m. I can't figure out what time the William Tell Express leaves from there and if arriving at 11 will give enough time.
Also, if for some reason we miss the connection, I understand there are other trains that follow the same route that leave hourly from Locarno--is that correct? Could we still get on the boat to Lucerne on one of those trains?
One more question, how much time does one need to allow at train stations to catch connections? I see where the layover may be anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes or more.
Thanks so much.
